McAllister, a member of the House Agriculture Committee, told the Monroe News Star today that he needed to take care of his family “as we work together to repair and strengthen the relationship I damaged.”

McAllister had been asked to step down by Louisiana's Republican governor, Bobby Jindal, and by the head of the state GOP, Roger Villere. McAllister told the newspaper he plans to serve out his term, which runs through early January.
